Six individuals arrested for violating home quarantine requirements on September 6

By QLNews

As the State of Qatar moves on to phase four, it is important for the community to continue to follow procedures to ensure that efforts are successful, and the nation can fully reopen.

The country has taken a series of measures to ensure the public remains at the lowest possible risk of contracting the virus.

In this regard, the country made home quarantine mandatory for those who recently had contact with a COVID-19 affected individual and for the returning citizens and residents from different countries.

Despite the government's directives, some people have violated these requirements putting public health and safety at risk.

The competent authorities have been actively involved in monitoring and holding accountable all individuals who act against the home quarantine requirements.

On Sunday, September 6, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced that six more people have been arrested for such violations.

The authorities concerned called on citizens and residents under home quarantine to fully commit to the Ministry of Public Health's conditions, to ensure their safety and the safety of others.

Anyone who violates the conditions is subject to the penalties stated in Article No. 253 of Criminal Law No. 11 of 2014, the provisions of Law No. 17 of 1990 on protection from infectious diseases, and Law No. 17 of 2002 on protecting society.
